Day 2 of our zucchini extravaganza! This recipe was slightly inspired by the Green Monster Muffins. I figured if we can hide spinach in a breakfast muffin, I can certainly hide zucchini. I made them with the larger muffin tin so that Dan would actually eat breakfast and not procrastinate from eating until lunch.
These muffins are a bit calorie dense for me and had I been eating them I would probably make the smaller muffins and added in some chia or flax seeds. However, they were perfect just the way they are for Dan.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg, at room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 Pound zucchini, coarsely grated (about 1 cup)
6-oz semisweet chocolate chips
2. In a medium bowl, whisk the 1 1/2 c flour, 2 T cocoa powder, 1/2 t cinnamon, 1/2 t baking soda, 1/4 t baking powder, and 1/4 t salt together.
6. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin.
